I just finished watching the first episode of LOST...It was good, very emotional, dramatic, thrilling and full of mystery.
but seriously they do to much of a flashback...I'm confused of everything now...anyone watch it and understands it ??? care to explain ?
When I saw the first episode of Lost I thought that it was intriguing and well-made.
A few episodes later I became totally frustrated with the soap opera flashbacks that all these annoying characters continue to have. The producers are hellbent on milking their slick sci-fi-soap-opera for all they can get. I really hate it now and could not be bothered to waste my time on this heavily-padded load of crap.

Anyone just fin watching inner senses on SBS? i did abit of research and the main actor leslie cheung committed suicide only a few years ago
The movie was alright, was kinda cheesy at the end.
When I heard about his suicide on 1 April 2003, I thought it was a bad April Fool's joke.
Later his suicide note revealed he was suffering from severe depression.
I do not remember the note mentioning any specific reason why he wanted to kill himself, but I suspect it had something to do with the break up of his long relationship with banker Daffy Tong Hok-Tak. I think I recall his old friend, the famous pop star Anita Mui, saying something about how Hong Kong society was tolerant of Leslie Cheung's bisexuality only as long as he kept it in the closet.
Inner Senses was the last movie that Leslie Cheung completed.
I watched it on SBS TV and thought this is just like what happened to him in real life - his inner demons and ghosts drive him to madness and he is standing on the edge of a building ready to commit suicide.
Too bad that his final movie was a dud.
Like many Hong Kong horror movies, this one was also full of wacky wide-angle close-ups and cheesy style and predictable outcomes.
SBS in April is showing Asian horror movies every Wednesday night.
Last week's Korean film, A Tale of Two Sisters, had far more sophisticated stylistics and some genuinely skin-crawling creepy scenes.
Next week SBS will be showing The Eye, followed the week after by The Eye 2.
